Chicagoland’s Premiere Dog Boarding

At the Barking Lot, when we say Everything Under One Woof, we're not kidding. We provide doggie daycare, dog boarding, and dog grooming services and also offer all-natural, filler & chemical free dog food products.

Whether you're looking to grab a bag of high-quality all-natural dog food or just drop off your dog for doggie daycare or for an extended stay at our fantastic dog boarding facilities, we can take care of everything. We provide tender loving care to enrich the life of your dog in a stimulating healthy environment with all the comforts of home.

Our dedicated, pet-loving staff will ensure the needs of you and your pet are met – and make sure they're always looked after while you're away to give you complete peace of mind.

The Barking Lot offers a full suite of dog services in a safe, secure and comfortable surrounding for all breeds.
